I am considering my options for setting up a hitch for towing large (26' boat) and small (4x8 landscape) trailers around with my 8N. Seems like I have two options. 1) is some version of an original drawbar setup and 2) a 3 point receiver setup. I read Ed Gooding's paper Ford Tractor Drawbar 101, and there was a good point in there about the 3 point lifting up and needing stay bars with the draw bar. I didn't see that same comment for option 2. What feedback do y'all have on setting up this hitch and precautions I should keep in mind so I don't flip over or damage the tractor or myself?
